Rapid charging firm InstaVolt has announced it has submitted plans to build one of the UK’s largest fully open hub of ultra-rapid chargers inside the M25.
Located at Syon Park in Brentford, near the A4 and M4, the estate is situated along a key commuter route, meaning that InstaVolt’s new hub will provide rapid charging for routes into and out of London. The company operates an open charger model, allowing any EV owner to use the charging points on a pay-as-you-go basis.
With congestion zones, low emission zones and ULEZ expanding to cover nearly all of Greater London within the circumference of the M25 imminently, the new hub is the latest in a string of announcements by the company, demonstrating its commitment to keeping up with infrastructure demand, it said.
Adrian Keen, CEO of InstaVolt, said: “The location of Syon Park is pivotal to engaging those who live on the commuter belt and providing them with an option to charge at a site where they themselves can switch off and recharge. Being able to launch a large hub with reliable charging and access to amenities Syon Park offers, is key to encouraging a change of sentiment when it comes to charging in the UK. We want EV drivers to see charging as an opportunity to rest, take in nature, or stop for a bite to eat.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Syon Park on this project to fulfil our commitment to a greener future and instil confidence in drivers making the switch to EV.”
